Family Office & High Net Worth Investments in Blockchain & CryptoCurrencies
The Blockchain industry is experiencing one of its most challenging periods in its short existence. The once, much hyped, panacea for all, has been humbled by the sharp correction that followed the ICO madness of 2017. There is a clear decline in public interest and crisis of faith by many in the industry itself. Many questions have arisen about the general future and purpose of Blockchain tech, from Satoshi’s vision, to its current volatile state and the cryptocurrencies real utilities, besides being, essentially, gambling tools. There are questions to be asked, and discussed, at our event such as:
Is the Blockchain industry emulating the same pattern as the dotcom tech bubble?
- Will the Blockchain tech still deliver the world changing solutions it once promised or has it been overhyped and in actuality years away from delivering mass market adoption?
- Is this current correction, just a stumbling block, in a maturing emerging market space?
- Will corporates embrace and invest in the ecosystem via the introduction of Security tokens?
- Will the market correction clear the path for the better elements?
These questions and others will be answered by some of the industry’s leading names: The corporate session will discuss what the leading corporates are experimenting with in this space, what the researchers see coming up ahead as well as what academia’s top names think. We will hear from the investors – from funds to private family offices who invest in the space, where the opportunities lie and what should be avoided; Legal & CPA experts will discuss how do the regulators, lawmakers and tax authorities view and approach the space and on the other end what is the advisers’ points of view – legal and accounting issues (evaluation, bookkeeping etc.).
In April 2018, DC Finance, the most tech oriented group in the family office space, held the first family office Blockchain conference in the world, featuring some of the field’s leading names. With partners like Reed Smith and BDO; speakers like Tim Draper, Barry Silbert, Ari Paul, Microsoft, Fidelity, HP and others, we delivered fascinating discussions on Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and the world of ICOs. Now, we are excited to present our second event held with Sherman & Sterling, our legal host.
